Surprisingly beautiful with a variety of remarkable natural experiences. Shane your guide is a third generation Howth man, with a lifetime of travel behind him and a real passion for Howth and its place in Irish and European history. Nobody knows it better.

Howth is a protected wilderness and biosphere remarkably close to the city on the shores of Dublin Bay. The Coastal environment is genuinely inspiring to the senses, the Cliffs, Lighthouses, Seabirds, seals, dolphins and porpoises are all here for good reasons too. Nobody knows it better. The transiations from woodland to jungle, heathland to cliff and beach will delight and amaze you. The pages of history slowly turn slowly from ancient Irish mythology and Aideen's Grave, though the original Celts. The island of Saints and Scholars overtaken by the Vikings, who were no sooner taught manners than the Normans showed up. As intriguing than Game of Thrones and continues to the present day. With Kings Landing and Queens for Tea, Castles kidnappings and ransoms.

Fill the gap between Coffee and lunch perfectly with the Howth Heritage Free Walk or head out for a real adventure on the Howth Safari. Come with a personal group and book a private day to boost mood, stimulate creativity build trust and improve relationships, as important to families as corporation.
